Hi there Just saw this from London and have received information that in one instance, a member of the public who has a car and a motorbike has found out that his old car will not be charged but his motorbike will. In what world does that make sense? https://www.london.gov.uk/press-releases/mayoral/...

Re: Hello from The Guildford Dragon NEWS

Hey there

Great to see you here. I think financial sustainability is a problem for most of us. Some brainstorming may be a good idea.

Re: Stories from the BBC

Certainly our local Council is happy to provide me with all their press releases etc and with a little bit of time checking enforcement orders and planning permissions I am normally as up to date as I need to be. The local BBC here is BBC Scotland so they very seldom do a story from my area unless i...

Re: What are you planning to do?

I created a specific election page so that candidates could send me press releases and they would be copied to there to let locals know what the candidates were saying. Have to say it has been a complete damp squib. Very little information has been sent, even when I have caught up with candidates pe...

Link to Government Announcement Pages

It's great when you have lots of local information, however sometimes when you just need to put something out there, or when you just want to keep an eye on things, the Governement announcement pages can be fertile ground for stories - UK Government - https://www.gov.uk/government/announcements Ther...

Hi everyone Lang Toon Times is based in Auchterarder in Perthshire and was started because I realised that a lot of local news was not known to local residents. Originally it started about 5 years ago with online and print but then I had to get a job so it bumbled along online for a while. Since jan...
